Mechanical Engineering Technology Major (B.S.)

https://manchester.unh.edu/program/bs/mechanical-engineering-technology-major

Engineering technology requires the application of engineering and scientific knowledge and methods combined with technical skills in support of engineering activities. Graduates may work in a variety of areas including engineering design, manufacturing, field service, testing, and sales and may work in management positions related to engineering, manufacturing, and computer technology.

The UNH Manchester BS in Mechanical Engineering Technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET.

The programs at UNH Manchester are designed to meet the needs of both full- and part-time students with a mix of classes scheduled during the day and in the evening.

Students must complete a minimum of 128 credits and satisfy the University's Discovery Program.
